Obama's Anti-Christian Views Forces U.S. Ambassador to Malta to Resign

By Joseph Lawler

Politico reports that Doug Kmiec, the U.S. ambassador to Malta, is resigning: 
A U.S. ambassador has offered the Obama administration his resignation after he was accused of spending too much time writing and speaking about his Roman Catholic beliefs to the detriment of his diplomatic duties.
His decision to step down comes just days after the State Department’s inspector general issued an audit asserting that Kmiec spent too much of his time expressing his religious views and not enough doing his job representing the United States in the island nation off the southern coast of Italy.
“I doubt very much whether one could ever spend too much time on this subject,” Kmiec wrote in his letter to the president, defending his focus on religious issues.
We're not in a position to know the circumstances of Kmiec's departure, in particular whether he was negligent on the job. But either way, it brings a small-scale controversy to a sad conclusion. 
As noted in the Politico piece, Kmiec was awarded the ambassadorship for his support of Obama in the 2008 election. A former member of the Reagan and Bush administrations and a prominent Catholic academic, Kmiec provided an intellectual backstop for "ObamaCons" and Catholic supporters of Obama. Kmiec's insistence that Catholics could vote for Obama despite his social liberalism, in particular, gave credence to Obama's efforts to attract the swing Catholic vote. 
It's impossible to know Kmiec's intentions, but his justifications of Obama's policies from a Catholic perspective -- especially his defense of Obama as a functionally pro-life politician -- were tortured at best. A group of pro-life Catholic academics went so far as to create a website called Moral Accountability to hold Kmiec and others responsible for Obama's policies once he took office, although the site became redundant not long after Obama began implementing his agenda and it became clear that it wouldn't be pro-life in any way.
It now seems as though, whatever Kmiec's motivation for initially defending candidate Obama, he thought that he could serve some greater good by ingratiating himself to Obama. His cited failures as an ambassador -- focusing on areas of concern for the faithful at the expense of diplomatic work -- are evidence of his desire for accomplishments in that area. I wonder if he would have been as supportive of Obama as he was had he known how much, or how little, he would be able to accomplish through their alliance. Again, it's impossible to know what exactly was in Kmiec's mind in 2008 or the factors behind his resignation now, but either way his is a cautionary tale.

Can you guess which Bible verses Barack Hussein Obama likes to avoid?
Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): "It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!"
Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under "a servant who becomes king."
And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: "let thy words be few...a fool's voice is known by multitude of words."
Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he's destined to become a black-slavery avenger.
Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!
For some stunning info on Pres. Obama and his fellow subversives, Google "Michelle Obama's Allah-day," "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "David Letterman's Hate Etc.," "Un-Americans Fight Franklin Graham" and also "Sandra Bernhard, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman." Also Google "Prof. F. N. Lee's ISLAM IN THE BIBLE [PDF]."
PS - Since Christians are commanded to ask God to send severe judgment on persons who commit and support the worst forms of evil (see I Cor. 5 and note "taken away"), Christians everywhere should constantly pray that the Lord will soon "take away" or at least overthrow all US leaders who continue to sear their conscience and arrogantly trample the God-given rights of the majority including the rights of the unborn. Do we need a second American Revolution?
PPS - For a rare look at the 181-year-old endtime belief which has long neutralized millions of American patriots by promising them an "imminent rapture" off earth - which has diverted them away from being prepared to stand against all enemies, domestic as well as foreign - Google "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty," "Pretrib Rapture Diehards," "Edward Irving is Unnerving," "Pretrib Rapture Secrecy," and "Pretrib Rapture - Hidden Facts" - all by the author of the bestselling nonfiction book "The Rapture Plot" (the most accurate documentation on the pretrib rapture's long hidden birth in Britain in 1830 - see Armageddon Books). Also Google "Stamping Out Harold Camping."
